Something I forgot to add, I am always on the lookout for unusual names, have added quite a few that are the only one listed, which is hard to do on here.I also wanted to tell everyone , many thanks for the updates, corrections,add on articles etc, and apologize for never writing back and saying it is done..I will always do the edit, but do not write everybody to let them know I did..I get so many edit requests, and do not mind doing them at all...Thanks again....I live in Baton Rouge La.Though I have listings in many states,most are within a days drive on my home.I really enjoy fulfilling photo requests, it is like a treasure hunt, and I like knowing I am helping a loved one connect in some small way.I love driving back roads and finding cemeteries in the middle of nowhere.I add veterans of most all the wars,as a small tribute to those that have shaped our country. But I have a special affinity for the guys of World War II.These soldiers are the reason today we are a free country and we are losing them at a rate of over 1100 a day.Take time out to thank them .And then there are the ones that reach out and for whatever reason touch me.I also seek any family last names, such as Cox,Cover,Vaughn.I usually enter the info directly from the grave marker, but will add any info requested.If any errors are found please let me know and I will correct.I do find such peace and love and sadness while walking these sites. Also every one of these I have entered I actually walked the cemetery.Therefore a little more personal to me. Please if you are new on here, we do welcome you, but be respectful of the rules and regulations.I want to apologize for all my errors.When I first started entering graves 11 years ago, i wrote the info down and transferred it, many times it was raining or I just could not understand my writing. Later years I add from a picture usually.So please forgive my early attempts|

Thank you so much for fulfilling my photo request!
Oh yes, everything is fine. I have just too many irons in the fire and am trying to slow down a little.
Most of my memorials were created when I was off from work for 5 months due to rotator-cuff repair to my shoulder. I am definitely no couch potato and have to stay busy so I decided to get involved with Find-A-Grave/genealogy and walked several cemeteries during the time I had to wear a sling on my arm.
It was good hearing from you Bobby and I hope all is well with you and yours! Thanks for checking up on me.

Great! Thanks so much. I've been so busy lately it's been hard to get out and take cemetery photos. And the weather hasn't helped! Hopefully the coldest temperatures are over.

Hi Bobby. I took photos yesterday of the four I went to find, but the photos of Willie Smith's marker were so light you can't read it. I just unclaimed it, but if no one else takes it, I'll go back this week and spray water on it so maybe the letters will show up better.
There was another request, for Claude Martin Enright, but there was no location on his memorial and he's not listed on the VA website, so I didn't know where to look. I unclaimed that one, too.
Were you able to find yours?
